Watch AMC’s NOS4A2: Frozen Season Premiere Official Teaser

AMC has released a Frozen Season Premiere teaser which you can watch below.

The series stars Zachary Quinto as the main antagonist Charlie Manx, Ashleigh Cummings as Vic McQueen, Olafur Darri Olafsson as Bing Patridge, Ebon Moss-Bachrach as Chris McQueen, and Virginia Kull as Linda McQueen.

NOS4A2, based on Joe Hill’s bestselling novel of the same name, tells the story of Charlie Manx, a seductive immortal who feeds off the souls of children, then deposits what remains of them into Christmasland – an icy, twisted Christmas village of Manx’s imagination where every day is Christmas Day and unhappiness is against the law. Manx finds his whole world threatened when a young woman in New England discovers she has a dangerous gift.

The Goldfinch‘s Ashleigh Cummings will play Vic McQueen, a young, working-class artist whose creativity awakens a supernatural ability to track Manx (Quinto). What Vic lacks in social confidence, she makes up for in courage, humor, and tough-as-nails grit. She strives to defeat Manx and rescue his victims without losing her mind or falling victim to him herself.

The first season is slated to premiere Sunday, June 2 at 9pm/8c.

Cover Reveal For Joe Hill’s Full Throttle Short Story Collection

Who’s ready for a new collection of short fiction from Joe Hill? 

Here’s the awesome cover to Full Throttle by Joe Hill which goes on sale October 1, 2019. 

In this masterful collection of short fiction, Joe Hill dissects timeless human struggles in thirteen relentless tales of supernatural suspense, including “In The Tall Grass,” one of two stories co-written with Stephen King, basis for the terrifying feature film from Netflix.

A little door that opens to a world of fairy tale wonders becomes the blood-drenched stomping ground for a gang of hunters in “Faun.” A grief-stricken librarian climbs behind the wheel of an antique Bookmobile to deliver fresh reads to the dead in “Late Returns.” In “By the Silver Water of Lake Champlain,” two young friends stumble on the corpse of a plesiosaur at the water’s edge, a discovery that forces them to confront the inescapable truth of their own mortality . . . and other horrors that lurk in the water’s shivery depths. And tension shimmers in the sweltering heat of the Nevada desert as a faceless trucker finds himself caught in a sinister dance with a tribe of motorcycle outlaws in “Throttle,” co-written with Stephen King.

Featuring two previously unpublished stories, and a brace of shocking chillers, Full Throttle is a darkly imagined odyssey through the complexities of the human psyche. Hypnotic and disquieting, it mines our tormented secrets, hidden vulnerabilities, and basest fears, and demonstrates this exceptional talent at his very best.

You can pre-order the 384 page book HERE.

Shudder’s Creepshow Horror Series To Feature Stories By Stephen King, Joe Hill, And Joe Lansdale

Shudder announced that the streaming service’s upcoming horror anthology show Creepshow will feature an adaptation of an as-yet-unnamed story by Stephen King as well as segments which will adapt tales by Joe Hill and Joe Lansdale, among other authors. 

The six-episode season will feature segments based on stories by:

– “By the Silvery Waters of Lake Champlain” by Joe Hill (NOS4A2)
– “House of the Head” by Josh Malerman (Bird Box)
– “The Companion” by Joe Lansdale (The Bottoms)
– “The Man in the Suitcase” by Christopher Buehlman (The Lesser Dead)
– “All Hallows Eve” by Bruce Jones (The Hitchhiker)
– “Night of the Paw” by John Esposito (The Walking Dead: Webisodes)
– “Bad Wolf Down” by Rob Schrab (Monster House)

Creepshow is based on the 1982 film of the same name, which was directed by George Romero with a screenplay by King. The cast of Creepshow included Hill, who is King’s son.

Directors include David Bruckner (The Ritual), Roxanne Benjamin (Southbound, the upcoming Body at Brighton Rock), and Rob Schrab (Community). 

It was previously announced that the series’ executive producer Greg Nicotero will be directing on the show. In addition, John Harrison, who was the first assistant director for Romero on the original Creepshow movie, will be directing a story he co-wrote with Nicotero. Production has begun on Creepshow in Atlanta, GA. The show will premiere later this year.

“Having the opportunity to embrace the spirit of Creepshow and expand on what George and Steve created is, without a doubt, a lifelong dream come true,” said Nicotero in a statement. “Having grown up in Pittsburgh, Creepshow lives in a special place for me. I had the good fortune to visit the set as a teenager. I was able to look behind the curtain of filmmaking, and it changed me forever. I’m honored to continue telling the stories in the ‘comic book come to life’ world that fans fell in love with. This fall we will be ‘opening the coffin’ and unleashing upon the world our demented and ghastly stories, crafted by the best in business.”

“We’re thrilled to have Greg Nicotero on board to transform Creepshow into a series, featuring stories by giants in the horror field like Stephen King and Joe Hill, as well as a fantastic lineup of writers, directors, and special effects wizards,” said Shudder GM Craig Engler. “This a dream series for fans of the original movies and for anyone who wants to experience ‘the most fun you can have being scared.’”

Zachary Quinto Is A Soul-Sucking Monster In NOS4A2 First-Look Photo

Four decades ago, horror director Tobe Hooper terrified TV viewers with his 1979 adaptation of Stephen King’s vampire novel Salem’s Lot. Now AMC is hoping to chill spines in a similar fashion with this small-screen version of NOS4A2, the 2013 book from King’s son Joe Hill, which reworked the traditional myth of the undead bloodsuckers.

The show stars Zachary Quinto as the ancient, supernaturally powered Charlie Manx, who periodically rejuvenates by feeding on the life forces of children as he transports them to a fantasy world he has created called Christmasland. “In the journey they become these ghoulish creatures, and Charlie Manx is fed with vitality and youth,” says the actor.

Suntup Editions To Publish Signed Limited Edition of Horns By Joe Hill

Suntup Editions, publisher of fine limited edition books and art prints, is delighted to announce the upcoming publication of Horns.

A 2010 dark fantasy novel, Horns is the book with which TIME Magazine proclaimed, “Joe Hill has emerged as one of America’s finest horror writers.” Horns follows the story of Ig Parish. After the brutal murder of his girlfriend Merrin Williams, a grief-stricken Ig awakens one morning to find horns growing out of his head. Ig soon discovers the horns hold a mysterious power that forces people to reveal their deepest and darkest secrets to him as he defends his innocence and fights to avenge the death of his one true love.

Horns was nominated for a Bram Stoker Award and hailed by the Los Angeles Times as “a richly nuanced story. Fire and brimstone have rarely looked this good.” In 2013, the novel was adapted into a film starring Daniel Radcliffe, which made its debut at The Toronto International Film Festival before receiving a theatrical release on October 31, 2014.

Joe Hill has written a new introduction exclusively for this fine press limited edition. “I am so pleased to be doing an edition of Horns by Suntup Editions,” says Hill. “Their books are remarkable.”

This is the first North American signed limited edition of Horns, and it is presented in three states: An Artist Gift edition, a Numbered edition and a Lettered edition. All three measure 6” x 9” and feature twelve full-color illustrations by Magdalena Kaczan. The Numbered and Lettered editions are signed by Joe Hill and Magdalena Kaczan, and all editions include a new introduction by Joe Hill.

Artist Gift Edition:

Signed by artist Magdalena Kaczan, the Artist Gift edition features a dust jacket with stunning wrap-around artwork by Kaczan. It is a full cloth smyth-sewn binding with two-hits foil stamping, and is the only edition of the three with the wrap-around dust jacket art. The book is printed offset, and is housed in a custom printed slipcase. $85

Numbered Edition:

The Numbered edition is limited to 265 copies, the first 250 of which are for sale and numbered in black. The remaining 15 copies are numbered in red and reserved for private distribution. It is a Bradel binding with Japanese cloth boards, and a genuine snakeskin spine. The edition is printed letterpress on Mohawk Superfine paper, and is housed in a custom two- piece die cut enclosure. $675

Lettered Edition:

The lettered edition is limited to 26 copies for sale, lettered A-Z in Morse code and printed letterpress on Rives cotton paper. It is quarter bound in leather with crushed silk boards. A 14-karatt gold cross is inset into the cover, with the chain of the cross foil stamped in gold. The edition features three custom pitchfork-shaped bands across the leather spine, and gilded page edges. The book is housed in a handmade rough-sawn pine box with a black velvet-lined bookbed, and designed to resemble the underside of a treehouse with a trapdoor opening. Included with the Lettered edition of Horns is a 12 page hand-stitched booklet featuring Merrin’s letter to Ig, presented in Morse code. The front cover is hand-lettered and printed letterpress on Hahnemühle Bugra paper with French flaps. $2,995

The Morse Code Booklet

Since its launch in late 2016, Suntup Editions has garnered the attention of fans, bloggers, and journalists alike. Their stunning premiere project The Eyes of the Dragon Art Portfolio with Lettered and Numbered Editions signed by David Palladini, along with The Covers Collection, limited edition fine art prints featuring original cover art from the novels by Stephen King, made Suntup Editions the ultimate “one to watch” and one of the fastest rising new printing presses on the scene.

In early 2018, Suntup Editions announced it would publish the world’s first limited edition of Misery, which was released with not only the blessing but bearing the signature of Stephen King himself.

This was followed by the announcement of a limited edition of Shirley Jackson’s classic novel, The Haunting of Hill House. Horns will mark Suntup’s fourth publication.

“Between Stephen King, Joe Hill, and Shirley Jackson, we truly have the Holy Trinity,” says Paul Suntup, owner and founder of Suntup Editions. “It’s the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost!”

The mission of the press is to publish finely crafted limited editions, by collaborating with some of today’s leading writers, artists, designers, printers and bookmakers to create an edition that is itself, an art object. By incorporating elements of the story into the design and production of the books, and enclosures, their editions offer a unique reading experience.

Publication is scheduled for Summer 2019 and will be available for pre-order at https://shop.suntup.press from 9am Pacific time on Sunday, September 30, 2018.
